News Item:  Hillary Clinton's emails now being released through Wikileaks indicate
stomach-churning duplicity.

Ma'am, could you explain why your husband called you Hilla the Hun?

There you go again, when the answer is quite simple and touchingly affectionate.  
That's my husband ...

But you never answered the question ...

I did, but you folks ignore the obvious.

I am sorry.  I still don't understand.

That's the problem with reporters in this country -- lack of understanding ...

Let me try another subject.  Wikileaks' release of your hacked emails ...

I refuse to confirm they are my emails ... or a Russian plant.

If I may get on with my question ... You say that politics is like sausage being made ...
better not watch it.

That's right.  You don't wanna know ...

Shouldn't the public be aware of backroom deals?

Ha!  Ha!  Ha!

Is that why you say, 'So you need both a public position and a private position.'  Is
that fundamentally honest?

Welcome to the grown-up world ...

You said you were "far-removed" now from the middle-class world you grew up in ...

Well wouldn't you be in my position?

You know, you still never answered my original question.

Oh come on now ...  Hilla is short for Hillary.  And half of America calls each other
'Hon', so what's the big deal?
